Publisher Rising Star Games has picked up the Vita version of hard as nails Metroidvania game La-Mulana for release in the west.
Japanese developer Pygmy Studios is behind the Vita port, which will be released as La-Mulana EX over here. It launched in Japan in 2013.
Released as a free PC game in 2005 before receiving a commercial remake for PC and WiiWare in 2012, La-Mulana is an outlandishly challenging 2D action-adventure.
In February 2014 a $200,000 Kickstarter for La-Mulana 2 was successfully funded. The sequel is due out in December 2015.
Screenshots of the Vita game are below.
